Where is the Power?

We live in the city of Yekaterinburg, Russia. On May 13, 2019, oligarchs started the construction of a huge Orthodox cathedral in one of the most loved parks in the centre of our city. The people came to the park to defend it and kept protesting for five days, shouting “This is our city, we are the voice of the city” until they were heard by the government.
